SAN DIEGO--(Johnson & Weaver, LLP announces it is investigating whether certain officers and directors of Assisted Living Concepts (NYSE: ALC) (“ALC”) breached their fiduciary duties to the company and violated federal securities laws by making false and misleading statements about its facilities’ rental rates. Specifically, in its Securities and Exchange Commission filings, ALC represented that it was in compliance with all of its lease covenants, including one of its landlord’s requirements that it maintain an occupancy rate of 82% of “bona fide” residents. It is alleged that many of its “occupants” were actually employees of the company. ALC recently settled a lawsuit brought by the landlord for $19.5 million. In addition, ALC announced the termination of its CEO on May 29, 2012, and on August 7, 2012, announced that the SEC was conducting an investigation. Upon this news, ALC's stock price fell by 26.74% on unusually heavy trading.)--Shareholder Rights Law Firm
